Jordan Peele And Keegan-Michael Key Reunite For Henry Selick's Latest

Key and Peele will play two scheming demon brothers.

Netflix is developing an animated stop-motion film titled "Wendell and Wild" for which comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been roped in. Henry Selick, the director of films such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline, has been struggling for some time to get a new stop motion movie off the ground. The project has been in development for years, but it was announced today (March 14) that Netflix will finance and distribute the macabre flick. Peele and Clay McLeod Chapman are penning the screenplay for the movie, whilst a tie-in children's book is also planned. Also involved is Argentinian artist Pablo Lobato, who will whip up designs for the characters.

Ellen Goldsmith-Vein of The Gotham Group will produce, along with Peele through his Monkeypaw banner, and Selick. Both have done quite a lot of voice work for animated series and features: together they stole scenes as Alpha and Beta Wolf in Storks, and more recently Peele played Melvin in Captain Underpants and Key played Dave the dove in The Star. Selick is also now developing a TV series based on the horror-themed video game Little Nightmares.
